“CUSN8 Bronze bracelet with layered construction. Outer links and clasp made of CUSN8 which will patina with your bronze watch. Inner links are made from 316L SS to prevent turning your wrist green when coming into contact with bronze. Clasp bridge and inner parts are made from steel too.” -Zelos
On 2/24/21 Zelos launched a new Swordfish 40mm with a solid CUSN8 bronze case, available with a bronze bracelet. The bronze bracelet is a first for the Singapore based microbrand, but it isn’t the first in the watch industry. Back in 2020, Oris launched their Limited Hölstein Edition with a full bronze bracelet… but not like Zelos. You see, bronze patina is cool and all, but not when it turns your wrist green. Zelos solved this problem by capping the back of the links with 316L stainless steel. Strap swappas will be happy to know that the end-links are equipped with built-in quick release springbars.
The SF40 Bronze dial offerings include: Meteorite, Forged Carbon, Emerald (green), Teal, Salmon, and Frost (white).
Currently priced at $199 USD, the bronze band is available as an add-on. At the time of this post, it is specifically made for SF40 models, but Zelos has plans to make it more widely available across their collection.
